Plain Ol’ Motes For Wednesday

A lie by omission, is still a lie: ABC news released a poll this week suggesting the Florida education bill is unpopular among Americans. The bill, officially named Parental Rights in Education, states, “Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.” Left-wing critics, including many in the media, have referred to the legislation as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill even though such language is absent from the bill itself.   ABC now admits the poll obscures the key detail; that the highly debated portion of the Florida bill applies to only the youngest of school-age children. Remember, a poll proves exactly what the person paying for it wants it to prove.

Self-important hypocrites:  A gaggle of A-list celebrities including Mark Ruffalo and Leonardo DiCaprio are calling on the Royal Bank of Canada to defund the Canada Gas pipeline. accused the financier of “bankrolling the climate crisis” as well as “violating the rights of Indigenous Peoples.” I checked the list of the private-jet using group. All of them appear to be American, so who the hell are they to demand anything from a Canadian bank? Just asking.

Movie suggestion: “Rescued By Ruby” is a really good family nite at the movies. No shootouts, no car chases but will hold your interest and might even spur some family conversations. It has a great Rotten-Tomatoes rating, and I will be watching it again.

Don’t speak the devils name: Well, I was asking where Dr Fraud Fauxi was hiding, and suddeny he starts popping up in the Sunday “news” show. Of course, he was talking to another make believe  George Stephanopoulos. Discussing the new BA.2 variant of COVID, he states that new variants of COVID could cause America to reinstitute some restrictions.

Bite the hand providing diner: Kim Kardashian has been slammed for serving “tiny portions” of pasta on her $150million private jet. It costs about $60k to fly that aircraft to Miami and back, or about $3,500 per person. The people complaining were Kartrashin employee’s and were flown free. Talk about employee loyalty, there ain’t none here.

Hypocrisy supreme: Saturday on MSNBC’s “Cross Connection,” The Nation’s Elie Mystal, a regular on MSNBC, accused Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) of trying to get Biden-appointed Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson “killed.”  He says, “I need the Democrats to get up there and defend her just as vociferously as Lindsey Graham defended alleged attempted rapist Brett Kavanaugh.”  You gotta admire his restraint when speaking about “alleged attempted rapist”. You remember., the man that was never charged, who was investigated by the fbi, and completely exonerated. These people do not deal in facts, just accusations. I keep saying, let’s use their own tactics and rules. They won’t like it at all. Especially when they come at her with these “trumped-up alleged issues about her sentencing for sex offenders”. When the Demo’s do it, and they destroy a man’s good name and that of his family, it’s in the cause of justice. When Republicans do it, they are trying “to get her killed”.
